Rename a backup group

Select the backup group from the groups drop-down list. Open the File menu or right click on the backup list and choose Rename Group. A window similar with the one for Create a new group will appear. You can enter the new name and press OK. The group will be renamed and it will keep all the backup jobs it had.

Delete a backup group

Select the backup group from the groups drop-down list. Go to File menu or right-click in the backup list and choose Delete Group. A warning message will appear before the deletion. If you choose Yes, the backup group will be deleted with all its backup jobs. To move backup jobs to a different backup group, you must edit the backup job's properties and select a different group for them.
